Third Sunday of Lent – Obedient Heart

You’ve been obeying Church laws since Ash Wednesday; that is, no meat on Fridays, no eating between meals on Ash Wednesday, attending Mass every weekend. But there’s a lot more to obedience than following the rules. The word “obedience” comes from a Latin word meaning “to listen.” Halfway through Lent, it’s a good time to listen. Set your heart on spending ten minutes a day listening to God. Just sit quietly, and let God tell you “I love you.” Perhaps you’ll feel your heart skip a beat.
